When we first saw this convertible up for auction, we had to scan the listing twice to make sure we were reading it correctly. This is a 1948 MG TC convertible with only 749 original miles on the car. You could hardly find a 2012 convertible with fewer miles on it, and this car was built over 60 years ago! What a fantastic find.
Take a look at our featured remarkable listing, this 1948 MG TC ORIGINAL Convertible Roadster British Racing Green:
The listing talks a little about the history of this postwar MG:
“When the TC made its debut in 1945, it ushered in a new love of sports cars that would bloom in the 1950′s. American servicemen, particularly those returning from England, took a liking to these roadsters and brought back quite a few when they came home. The TC was the first postwar MG, launched in 1945. Exactly 10,000 were produced, from September 1945 (chassis number TC0251) to Nov. 1949 (chassis number TC10252). Amazing, historical car. “
